Outstanding Selb Bavaria 1900's Hand Painted "Red Currant" 12-3/4" Charger & Cake Set by the Listed Chicago Artist, "Steve"

During the early 1900's Chicago was blessed with some of the finest China Decorating Studios in the country including Pickard, Brauer, Donath, Stouffer, and Osborne. Yet, their were many other fine China Studios that also produced beautiful artistic and desirable china pieces. Once such studio was the Stevenson Studio of Chicago. William J. Stevenson was a professional freelance china decorator operating during the WWI years in Chicago. His work and style of painting is often mistaken for Pickard...it was that good. He used a short version of his name for his signature ...."STEVE". By 1918 his success and popularity led him to open the Stevenson Studio.

This is a fine example of "STEVE" works....a large 12-7/8" hand painted Charger & four [4] matching 8-1/4" Plate. The Artist has decorated the Set with vibrant and colorful "Red Currant" on stem and leaf against a background of shadow leafing and colors of creme yellow & light creme blue. Heavy gilded gold graces the outer rim of all the pieces giving the set an elegant and rich look.

The beautiful "Red Currant" Set is in excellent condition and totally damage free of chips, cracks, or other damage...with the gold being near pristine.

The Set displays several "Favorite Bavaria" marks and has been signed on some of the pieces...."Steve"

The beautiful Set is vibrant and colorful and shows extremely well.
